THE SMASHING PUMPKINS DEBUT NEW SONG "LIGHTNING STRIKES"
AVAILABLE NOW AT WWW.SMASHINGPUMPKINS.COM
The Smashing Pumpkins have released their ninth free track “Lightning Strikes”. It is now available for free download at www.smashingpumpkins.com; the site also offers a widget enabling fans to host the song anywhere on the web.
Pumpkins leader Billy Corgan says the song is "dedicated with affection to Mark Tulin...and all our great Japanese fans who are in our prayers." Mark Tulin, the bassist and founding member of the pioneering psych-rockers the Electric Prunes, died last month. Tulin played in the Pumpkins and appears on tracks from the band's Teargarden By Kaleidyscope work.
"Lightning Strikes" is now the ninth song to be offered to fans via free download. It is from the Pumpkins' Teargarden By Kaleidyscope, an in-progress 44-song work. Since December 2009, the band has been releasing one song at a time for free, with eight of the songs also available on two physical EPs that were released in 2010.
